After my last post, I am glad I’m not the only one who loves all the flowers! As I had some time away from my craft desk over the summer, I went back to see what I had missed and came across this beautiful Magnolia & Apple Blossom set. I love that stunning large flower and the intricate leaves with all the sections.
Before I jump into the card, just a reminder that the last of the STAMPtember collaborations are selling out fast. You can check out the details of what is left at the bottom of this post.

watercoloured magnolia & apple blossom
White flowers can be hard to paint on white card, so I added in lots of different colours to add interest and make the flower stand out from the paper – purply greys in the shadows, warm pinks at the base of the petals and a glowing yellow for the flower centre.
Leaves, oh, I do love leaves! I built the leaves with lots of layers – a light layer as a base and then deeper and deeper colours to the sections.
For the greeting, I used the Jubilee Sentiments set stamped in Forest Moss Distress Oxide ink.
STAMPtember is a very busy time of the month with new releases virtually every day of the month.

STUNNING WORK, Debby!!! ;) You ALWAYS make me SMILE when I see your work!
Debby, I hope you know how talented you are. Your choice of colors is “spot on”. Do you ever paint on larger canvases? Thank you for sharing!
Occasionally, but larger canvases can seem a little scary to me! I am trying to work up to it, though and have done the odd one. I like the idea of more space to make the watercolours have a good workout.
Absolutely beautiful, Debby. So, so beautiful I have no more words ❤️
I adore anything you paint! You are so awesome and have such great talent!
Oh, Debby! The beauty of your work continues to amaze me!
Be well and take care.
I used your link bought the magnolia stamp/die set because of how beautifully you painted it. You are definitely an inspiration to me, Debby!
Just exquisite. Lovely design, beautiful painting and there’s just something that shines out of this card. Thank you.
